Since being diagnosed with PCOS, I felt completely comfortable around Dr. Delaney. I knew I could ask the "stupid" questions and she wouldn't treat me as if I should already know the answers. My first egg retrieval and transfer went relatively well although did not end with desirable results. Leading up to my second transfer, I was hospitalized for OHSS...During my hospitalization, Dr. Delaney was compassionate and comforting, visiting me during my stay and discussing options for future transfers. She also called me personally on her cell phone once I returned home to ensure I was continuing a path to recovery.
Strengths and weaknesses of the nursing staff [at Methodist for Women] varied, as I would frequently work with different nurses. For the most part, I was very happy with the nurses I worked with. They were always upbeat, comforting, and knowledgeable...Monitoring appointments were first come first serve. Depending on the day, there could be a lengthy line down the hall...my egg retrieval expense was approximately $7,100. PGS testing for up to 8 embryos was $1,200. Cryopreservation of embryos was $1,000.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
From the start of receiving my PCOS diagnosis in 2018, Dr. Delaney has been informative, re-assuring, and compassionate. In 2019, we transferred our first embryo which unfortunately did not stick around. Dr. Delaney felt this was primarily due to thin uterine lining. When I was ready to try again, Dr. Delaney wanted me to gain 10-15 pounds to increase estrogen levels and build a more robust uterine lining. I finally achieved my goal weight, although my second transfer was canceled on two occasions. One transfer was canceled due to thin uterine lining and the second was for OHSS complications leading to a short hospitalization. It should be noted that I was being monitored by other REs when my OHSS peaked, as Dr. Delaney was not available. It was Dr. Delaney, however, who determined my labs were critical and that I needed IV hydration. During my hospitalization, Dr. Delaney admitted my case was more complicated than she initially anticipated. She shared with me that she closely communicates with her colleagues to determine the best and safest protocol to achieve our desired results. This was reassuring to know she cared enough to reach out to other specialists to help us achieve the results we've been praying for. Unfortunately, we have yet to see a positive pregnancy test after two transfers.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Take notes and advocate for yourself like you would with any other doctor. Remember that you are the customer and your RE is providing a service. Your questions and concerns are valid, as you're the one putting your body, emotions, and finances on the line. Don't be afraid to ask "stupid" questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Since being diagnosed with PCOS, I felt completely comfortable around Dr. Delaney. I knew I could ask the "stupid" questions and she wouldn't treat me as if I should already know the answers. My first egg retrieval and transfer went relatively well although did not end with desirable results. Leading up to my second transfer, I was hospitalized for OHSS. I was unbelievably frustrated, emotional, and uncomfortable. And truthfully? I was mad. Not only had our transfer been canceled, but I knew a hospitalization related to fertility medications would not be financially friendly on our household income. During my hospitalization, Dr. Delaney was compassionate and comforting, visiting me during my stay and discussing options for future transfers. She also called me personally on her cell phone once I returned home to ensure I was continuing a path to recovery.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
For my egg retrieval, I remember stimulating with Follistim. I also used Ganirelix and a Lupron trigger to prevent OHSS. As I prepared for my first transfer, I was using oral/vaginal/transdermal estrogen (unsure of dose), baby Aspirin, and progesterone in oil. I may have been taking something else, although it’s been so long I can’t remember. In preparing for my second transfer, Dr. Delaney's goal was to increase circulation to my uterus. Therefore, I was on the following medications: vaginal estrace 2x/daily, 1/2 tab vaginal Cialis, L-arginine, baby Aspirin, Del-Estrogen every third day, and progesterone in oil.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Strengths and weaknesses of the nursing staff varied, as I would frequently work with different nurses. For the most part, I was very happy with the nurses I worked with. They were always upbeat, comforting, and knowledgeable. On occasion, I would work with a particular nurse over the phone who seemed to contradict what Dr. Delaney had previously told me and even recommended I start birth control on the wrong date. I have not worked with this nurse in quite some time – not by choice, just by chance. Most nurses have been really great at communicating with Dr. Delaney any questions I have to ensure we were all on the same page.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
Overall, the clinic is very efficient. Reception staff are always friendly and welcoming. If it weren't for the early hour blood work and ultrasounds, I don't know how I would be able to make this all work with my job.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Methodist for Women.
Monitoring appointments were first come first serve. Depending on the day, there could be a lengthy line down the hall. Knowing this, I always showed up at the time the clinic opened or even a bit earlier so I could commute to work. It has never been a problem with my schedule. I do, however, wish they allowed more time for questions/concerns following the monitoring appointment. I felt rushed sometimes and felt privacy to ask these questions was limited, as you are sometimes exposed to other patients due to the work space.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women.
At the time, my egg retrieval expense was approximately $7,100. PGS testing for up to 8 embryos was $1,200. Cryopreservation of embryos was $1,000. Frozen embryo transfer was about $4,400. Medication expenses varied depending on the pharmacy for us. I would say we typically spent anywhere from $400-$1,000 on medications for egg retrieval and each transfer prep. This is a rough estimate!
Describe Abigail Delaney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
Dr. Delaney wasn't opposed to doing an embryo transfer with two embryos, as we discussed this to increase chances for success. Although she did not recommend doing a multiple embryo transfer at this time, as we have PGS tested embryos.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr Abigail Delaney is one of a kind, she puts her heart into her job and it shows day in and day out. The fertility world is full of ups and downs and i never felt alone throughout my journey. She was always very transparent with me allowing me to process the info and make informed decisions for what was best for me and my family. I had a very complicated and somewhat rare diagnosis and i don’t feel that i would’ve had the successes that I’ve had in becoming a mother if it weren’t for Dr Delaney and her persistence and hopefulness in the process. She’s passionate and determined and she isn’t afraid to ask for help if she needs it. She consulted with other doctors to ensure she was on track with our plan of care and as a patient that reassurance is nice too. Having complete faith and trust in Dr Delaney was easy for me, she made it that way and I’ll be visiting her again soon when we’re ready to try again.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Have faith and trust in the process, it takes time and it’s not easy and it’s not always going to be the outcome you want on the first try but know the Dr Delaney is going to do everything she can to give you the outcome you’re hoping for
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
After years of seeing my general Obgyn and feeling unheard and discouraged, i finally felt truly listened to and not just during the initial consult but every step of the way I was a part of the decision making process and was well informed to do so. I had full trust in Dr Delaney from the moment I met her and she never gave up on the process and helped me to stay positive and moving forward as well. She understands being on this side of the process and leads with an empathetic heart.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
At Methodist Womens, they are a team and work together seamlessly. The nurses are kind and compassionate and do a great job of explaining results and next steps so you truly understand the process. It’s a small group so when you receive phone calls with updates you can put a face to the call and it’s not a stranger giving you unexpected news... it truly feels like a family unit working together as one.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
This clinic is very welcoming and hospitable. They get to know you on a personal level and truly care about you and your family. From the gals at the front desk who will welcome you by name when you enter, to the staff doing your blood draw who make you comfortable whether it’s your first or your 100th time getting it done. Appointments are well organized and quick and easy, but also allow for time to get any questions answered and you don’t feel rushed out. Overall a great vibe of a positive work culture!
Describe Abigail Delaney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
We elected to do single embryo transfer as that was the safest option for me and baby due to my cervical issues being able to safely carry if it were to be successful (which was the right choice because with both pregnancies i had to get a cerclage placed to carry to term).

Monitoring appointments, which are done frequently, are first come, first served from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. I appreciated that structure, because it's flexible to my schedule. I think if you're dealing with mild male factor, it would be smart to also work with a urologist, because while they have a good baseline understanding of male issues, their expertise seems more geared toward treating their female patients and less complex male factor.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I would describe Dr. Delaney as kind, smart and confident. She clearly outlined our treatment path and how that could change based on how my body responded. She took time to ask if I had any questions at each appointment and answer them clearly. During my first treatment cycle, I took 5mg letrozole CD3-7, and at my first monitoring ultrasound, Dr. Delaney calmly told me, pending blood work, it appeared I had already ovulated literally hours prior, and we'd likely need to cancel the IUI. It was disappointing, obviously, but she handled the situation in a way that prevented me from spiraling. She personally called with the blood work results to tell me I had ovulated and what we would do differently next cycle.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Come to your appointments with questions ready, since on the phone you primarily dealt with nurses.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
During out consultation, Dr. Delaney proactively empathized with our inability to conceive in the typical 12 months and told us she is an "infertility to survivor." She took the time to explain treatment plan options and answer questions, rather than shoo us out the door.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
My husband had a normal and in fact strong sperm analysis, save low morphology. My tests (CD3 blood work, a saline sono, and ultrasound) came back normal, apart from subclinical hypothyroidism. She explained that if I weren't TTC, my TSH level would be fine but since I'm planning a pregnancy, she wanted me on a low dose of levothyroxine to lower that number below 2.5. During our first treatment cycle, I was instructed to call on CD1 and come in on CD3 for a baseline ultrasound. During that CD3 appointment, I saw a different doctor who told me to come back on CD14 for my first monitoring appointment. (I typically ovulated between CD16-19.) Dr. Delaney had prescribed 5 mg of letrozole on cycle days three through seven to "strengthen" ovulation and potentially recruit more than one follicle so the sperm would have multiple targets. When I came to my monitoring appointment, Dr. Delaney did my ultrasound and determined I had already ovulated from two follicles. She told me we'd follow the same treatment path, but I would come in on CD11 instead for my first monitoring appointment. We did that during our second treatment cycle. I used 10,000 units of Pregnyl to trigger ovulation the night of my monitoring appointment and returned ~36 hours later for our IUI. My husband had an abnormally low post-wash count of 4 million. The clinic will do IUI with counts as low as 2 million – they did not explain why they were willing to go that low. The IUI was not successful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I interacted with a number of nurses. All of them were kind and also empathetic when I called to tell them about my negative test following our IUI. They were organized and gave clear instructions. They were not able to answer questions about why my husband's sperm did so poorly in the wash. When they called to relay my treatment plan after my failed IUI, they were not able to answer when I asked why Dr. Delaney wanted to move to injectables even though I responded well to letrozole.

I came to Dr. Delaney after 3 failed IVF attempts and being told I would more than likely need an egg donor. She immediately disagreed and gave us so much hope, explaining that we could try things a little differently and still have a great chance of having our own children. It’s not often that you go through something like this and come out with a doctor that you would also consider a friend.
I only had one retrieval [at Methodist for Women] but had 27 eggs retrieved, 15 day 5 embryos and 6 viable after PGS...They got to know me pretty well with how much I was there! They were all great and always greeted me in clinic and on the phone as a person, not just one of their patients...All of the doctors are amazing so even if you don’t see your own, you can feel comfortable knowing you’re still in great hands. Be prepared to spend some time in the waiting room because they are a busy clinic! But I do think that goes to show the amount of patients that want to see them.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I honestly don’t have enough good things to say about Dr. Delaney. Coming from a doctor who I felt somewhat gave up on our case, she got me through one of the hardest times of my life. And although it wasn’t an easy road, she handled the bumps in a way that kept me comfortable throughout the entire grueling process. I never doubted that she would get us a family and she made sure that I didn’t.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Sometimes the process takes time and a LOT of effort on you and the doctors part, but if you can, give it that time! It’s not always a quick fix, but If you let her, Dr. Delaney will put her entire heart into getting you your desired family!

Gonal F for stimulation for retrieval and also for stimulated transfers because my lining wouldn’t thicken for transfers with estrogen. I only had one retrieval with her, but had 27 eggs retrieved, 15 day 5 embryos and 6 viable after PGS.

I felt like she [Dr. Abigail Delaney] really rushed and pushed us to pursue IVF. She said it was our only option to get pregnant. I felt like there maybe should have been new blood work tests done for me since she was looking at some from my OB office and all the results were good on those. I also feel like I should have had a ultrasound or scan done to make sure everything was good for me on the inside. There was no talk on things that could be done to help my husbands SA. He later went to a urologist and received help there, but that was never mentioned as an option at the time. We were two 25 year old, newlyweds with student debt and had no way to afford IVF. I just felt like more could have been checked/discussed before jumping right into that option. We decided to make some lifestyle changes, get healthy, and take time off from doctors. We will see a second one later this year.

I didn’t feel like she really connected with me or took the time to. It was more so just her reading over the blood work that my OB had done and the semen analysis results for my husband. She did not do any new tests on me or scans or anything. She just pretty much said that since I told my OB the symptoms I was having I have PCOS (even though all my blood work is normal)

Dr. Delaney always personally made sure to answer my questions and make me feel heard. At one point when I was especially stressed out and nervous, she even offered for me to call her anytime even if I just needed to talk. When we lost our last pregnancy, she also gave me the biggest hug and let me break down.... We tried one round of iui with Femara and it was cancelled so we have always done injectable medication. After trying three iui’s, our doctor said she would do one more if we wanted
A few of the nurses [at Methodist For Women] came off as cold and grumpy a few times, but they were never the “regular” nurses I saw. For the most part, my nurses were always kind and compassionate and very knowledgeable... You often see the other doctors, especially if you are doing an IUI, and the other doctors don’t have as great of bedside manner. For example, both of our ultrasounds during our last miscarriage were done by the other doctors

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I absolutely love Dr. Delaney. I don’t have any complaints about her. I always feel cared for and she always seems invested in my success. Throughout this whole process I have always felt that she has been rooting for us and truly hopes she helps us to become parents.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Be honest with her and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr. Delaney always personally made sure to answer my questions and make me feel heard. At one point when I was especially stressed out and nervous, she even offered for me to call her anytime even if I just needed to talk. When we lost our last pregnancy, she also gave me the biggest hug and let me break down.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
We tried one round of iui with Femara and it was cancelled so we have always done injectable medication. After trying three iui’s, our doctor said she would do one more if we wanted but we didn’t want to waste the money on something that wasn’t working. With the egg retrieval cycle, she adjusted my meds whenever necessary and tried to find the sweet spot between getting a lot of eggs and overstimulation me.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
A few of the nurses came off as cold and grumpy a few times, but they were never the “regular” nurses I saw. For the most part, my nurses were always kind and compassionate and very knowledgeable if I had questions.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
You often see the other doctors, especially if you are doing an IUI, and the other doctors don’t have as great of bedside manner. For example, both of our ultrasounds during our last miscarriage were done by the other doctors and I think they were handled much differently than our doctor would have handled them.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Methodist for Women.
It was first come first serve hours. The only complaint I have about this is that the building opened at 6am and the office opened at 6:30 am and we all had to wait outside the door in the hallway. It always bothers me that they never have chairs out in the hallway for us. We pay a lot of money to sit on the floor. I also wish there was some way for us to know how many people are supposed to be coming in the morning. Some days the line outside the door is 3 people and sometimes it’s 15.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women.
Monitoring ultrasounds were $225 each, bloodwork $94 each time. Iui was $800. Egg retrieval was $7,100. Biopsy of up to 8 embryos $1,200. Cryopreservation of embryos $1,000. Frozen transfer $4,398.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
From the moment that I had my initial consultation I had a renewed sense of hope for a course of treatment. My wife and I had been trying for a year already with donor sperm at home. I had a chemical pregnancy and a missed miscarriage in that time. Dr. Delaney was very kind and hopeful that with some additional testing and treatment, I may be able to have a successful pregnancy. She answers my questions and seems to genuinely care about me as her patient.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I would tell a prospective patient that Dr. Delaney is very kind and to try to be patient because all of this fertility treatment takes a long time.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
She has excellent bed side manner, a good sense of humor and always explains things in a way that anyone could comprehend.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I had baseline testing and an ultrasound for one monitoring cycle. I was then put on 75 iu of Follistim injections for the first 5 days of a new cycle and after an ultrasound I was bumped up to 150 iu of Follistim for 4 more days. I had 2 follicles that were over 18mm and so I gave myself a shot of Pregnyl and 36 hours later I got my IUI. It was not successful and for the next cycle I will start at 150 iu of Follistim. I have lower estrogen levels and so they want to start getting those numbers higher right from the start.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Methodist for Women. (Assigned nurse: Monica)
Everyone in the Reproductive Endocrinologist floor is very kind. The receptionists are always friendly and helpful. The nurse I speak to most often is Monica and she always listens to my questions/concerns. She is non-judgmental and tries to get back to me as soon as she can. I really feel that everyone there is pulling for you to get a positive test.

My experiences with Dr. Delaney have been wonderful....During every stage of our treatment she reassured us and helped explain the process as much as we needed. She is always timely on calling us and giving us answers. What I could use more from Dr. Delaney is her bluntness. She is so sweet and comforting that sometimes I think it is difficult for her to be blunt with patients....I came to Dr. Delaney with what we thought was a blocked fallopian tube. After further testing, Dr. Delaney was able to confirm I did not have a blocked fallopian tube.
The first thing I noticed about the clinic [Methodist for Women] is how discreet and confidential it is. Infertility can be an awkward and nerve racking experience, but once you step through those doors they make you feel so welcome and helpful. I experienced timeliness too. They were very respectful of my time and our experience. They had several TV's and magazines available to use while you waited....An ultrasound was $225 and an ultrasound and lab work was $317. Specimen test was $550.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
My experiences with Dr. Delaney have been wonderful. From our consultation to our 3 failed IUI's, I always felt Dr. Delaney had our best interests at heart. During every stage of our treatment she reassured us and helped explain the process as much as we needed. She is always timely on calling us and giving us answers. What I could use more from Dr. Delaney is her bluntness. She is so sweet and comforting that sometimes I think it is difficult for her to be blunt with patients. I already recommend Dr. Delaney to my friends and family who are on their own infertility journeys, so I am very pleased with our experience as a patient!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
One piece of advice I would give to a prospective patient is to try not to get discouraged. Sometimes when the answer and results aren't what we want, it is easy to blame the doctor or treatment for not working. But remember, she always has her patients best interest at heart and she too is hopeful each and every round of treatment. My confidence in her skills and knowledge help me from becoming easily discouraged.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I felt like a human to Dr. Delaney because during our consultation she shared her own story of her infertility journey with us. This helped me to relate to her because I knew she struggled with our similar issue. Because of her openness, my husband and I felt like we could trust her, therefore we felt comfortable with her and her opinion and choices. During the infertility process what I needed most was to trust and feel comfortable with my doctor, that is why I felt more as a human than a number to her.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I came to Dr. Delaney with what we thought was a blocked fallopian tube. After further testing, Dr. Delaney was able to confirm I did not have a blocked fallopian tube. After establishing that, came the diagnosis. My husbands sperm results came back normal and my diagnostic testing came back normal also. She diagnosed us with unexplained infertility, which means without the help from medicine we would have a 5% chance on conceiving on our own. Because of this diagnosis, Dr. Delaney decided the next treatment option should be an IUI. We started with 75ml subq of Follistem every day. Every few days we had an ultrasound to check the size of the follicles and I had a lab draw to check my hormone levels. Once the follicles were at the optimal size around 2.0, I received the "trigger" injection, HCG, in the upper botocks. Roughly 24-48 hours later I had the IUI procedure. I started on progesterone suppositories 3 days after the IUI. A few days after our first IUI I had dark red spotting which is not normal. Dr. Delaney said that was due to a lack of progesterone. That IUI round failed. Dr. Delaney was pleased with the number of follicles I produced with that dosage so we performed another IUI with the exact procedure as above. But this time instead of using suppository progesterone, I use the progesterone in oil injection in my upper botock, due to spotting from previous IUI. This is a higher dose and more direct way for the body to get progesterone. That also resulted in a failed IUI. I was still producing quality follicles so we tried a 3rd IUI, which resulted in another failed IUI, same treatment as 2nd IUI. After this, Dr. Delaney recommended we try IVF. She stated the chances of a positive pregnancy are higher with IVF then IUI and with 3 failed IUI's this would be our best next step for treatment.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff were the best i've seen. They were caring and considerate of the circumstances that we were there for. They were thorough and explained all the treatment and procedures to use as much as needed. When I call with a question I always get an answer within 1-2 hours later. I never feel like I am bugging them or that I am asking non important questions.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
We were very pleased with Dr. Delaney, I the initial testing it was discovered that I had a polyp and she worked quickly to schedule and complete the removal so that it would not prolong our IVF process. As we went through treatment she took the time to answer all our questions and personally called us when we had the first round of embryos PGS tested and didn't have any that were able to be used. On the second round she took the time to work with us on our concerns about PGS and supported our decision to not have it done. She diligently worked to track and make sure that we would have successful outcomes with the medicines because I only have one ovary.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Be very open and share anything that you can even if you think it might not matter or have impact, because she will address your concerns and research them if needed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
She took the time to explain everything in detail and called personally to deliver results and discuss outcomes.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
On our first cycle I wasn't responding the way she had thougt so my medicine was increased after our first visit, this did result increase the outcome. However we did not end up with any viable embryos for implantation due to the outcome of PGS testing. On the second round she chose to begin on a slightly higher dose from the start which produced one more embryo from the first round. With only having one ovary she was very realistic with is on the number of embryos that we wouldn't likely achieve.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Methodist for Women.
She was very thoughrough in providing us results or seeking the answers to our questions. We had a lot of questions surrounding the outcome of our PGS testing and she went above and beyond to answer or get answers to them.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
The clinic is very professional and the staff works to make sure that you are checked in and seen quickly. Know that there are clinic hours for blood work and ultrasounds but they are also very helpful in working it out with your regular OB office to have some of the things done there if you don't live close by.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Methodist for Women.
There was a window for these appointments every morning for several hours and you could go at your convenience. If the clinic wasn't close to your home you could have them at your regular OB and they would assist in getting those setup.
Describe Abigail Delaney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
We discussed this at great lengths. With PGS we were told that with our circumstances she would do eSET and without PGS she was open to multiple embryo transfer but it was ultimately up to us.

She [Dr. Abigail Delaney] is kind and cheers you in through the process. She really wants the best results for all involved. I do wish I would have been pushed a little harder on medications for IVF based on the results from the IUIs and then after our IVF failed, we had a lot of questions and it seemed to irritate her as she didn’t have the answers.

I had ivf with gonal-f only [with Dr. Abigail Delaney]. Other doctors have since treated me with gonal-f + menopur and had better IVF results...There were moments when Dr. Delaney really showed that she cared, like when I miscarried. But for the most part, all care routed through nurses and I couldn't even get access to speak with the doctor...We went through IVF with her once, and she never told us during treatment that I had low estradiol compared to the follicles growing. Nor did she adjust my protocol to use Menopur, which other doctors that treated me since have all done, and my estradiol responded. As a result, we retrieved 15+ eggs and had no embryo to transfer.
for the most part, all care routed through nurses [at Methodist for Women] and I couldn't even get access to speak with the doctor...we retrieved 15+ eggs and had no embryo to transfer...Whoever was available that day called me, and they mainly told me what the doctor wanted, did not really care to hear out my questions and go back to address those with the doctor...This clinic prefers not to bill insurance for anything. Even if you have coverage for diagnostic testing, but not infertility treatments, they would rather avoid billing insurance as much as possible. As a result, I ended up having to submit a lot of claims on my own (and getting coverage).

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
We went through IVF with her once, and she never told us during treatment that I had low estradiol compared to the follicles growing. Nor did she adjust my protocol to use Menopur, which other doctors that treated me since have all done, and my estradiol responded. As a result, we retrieved 15+ eggs and had no embryo to transfer.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
She does not like to be questioned.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
There were moments when Dr. Delaney really showed that she cared, like when I miscarried. But for the most part, all care routed through nurses and I couldn't even get access to speak with the doctor.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I had ivf with gonal-f only. Other doctors have since treated me with gonal-f + menopur and had better IVF results.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Whoever was available that day called me, and they mainly told me what the doctor wanted, did not really care to hear out my questions and go back to address those with the doctor.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
This clinic prefers not to bill insurance for anything. Even if you have coverage for diagnostic testing, but not infertility treatments, they would rather avoid billing insurance as much as possible. As a result, I ended up having to submit a lot of claims on my own (and getting coverage).
Describe Abigail Delaney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
She recommended single embryo transfer only

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
My husband and I had a rough start to our assisted reproductive treatment, as we didn't feel clear on the medical process or treatment during several cycles of IUI. Additionally, we started the process feeling like bedside manner didn't matter, only the education, experience and skills of the doctor did ... in the end, we felt the complete opposite. I met Abby during several rounds of IUI, as she would perform my ultrasounds, even though we weren't under her specific clinical care. Through this, we bonded and simply enjoyed chatting. One day I asked her if it's a difficult process to switch to her clinical care and supervision and she reassured me it was easy to do. In fact, she mentioned that she looked forward to it. From that point on, my husband and I felt like, even if we weren't able to conceive, we knew it wasn't meant to be ... because, if it was, we were 100% confident Abby would be the one to do it. Now that we have a 16 month son - we are so grateful to her for her care and clinical expertise. Not only does Abby's educational pedigree speak volumes but, once you meet her and get to know when a genuinely kind and caring person she is (and an excellent mother), you just grow to love and appreciate her. Finally, I will note that my husband and I did one round of IUI with Abby and it resulted in a chemical pregnancy. She then went on maternity leave herself and instead of us rushing into another cycle of IUI or IVF, we decided to put our treatment on hold until Abby returned to work. Once she returned, we did one round if IVF and then our miracle baby, Julian, was conceived!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Ask all of the questions you have. Dr. Delaney will answer them all directly and explicitly and won't make you feel badly for being too inquisitive.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr. Delaney genuinely cared about successfully leading my husband and I through the process of conception. In fact, I candidly asked her if she felt conception was possible for us and she confirmed it was and also mentioned she was "determined" to help us succeed. Dr. Delaney explained to me that becoming a mom will be "even better than I imagined" and she was exactly right. She continued to instill hope in us while also explaining the facts and the process. After egg retrieval, we cried together and hugged, as we were both aware what a special moment/experience it was. We also had several conversations about my faith and how we equally agreed that God puts certain people in our lives at the exact, right time.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
Interestingly, while I was in the midst of assisted reproduction, I would seek out other women whom I know had similar experiences. I had specific questions for them about their treatment and many of them would say "I can't believe this but I don't remember those details now." I am now in the same boat. For us, once Julian was conceived, we never looked back and just leaned in to all the joy he brought. However, I do have one specific example that I feel was life changing. Abby was able to remove several eggs but, after the testing we had opted to do on our embryos to ensure they were healthy (which I HIGHLY recommend even though it's expensive) we only had 2 healthy ones (2 sweet boys). The morning of the egg implantation, we were informed that they had thawed 1 embryo and it looked great. However, right before the procedure, Abby came in and told me the embryo had shrunk quite a bit and she was worried about the viability. She recommended we thaw the second embryo and implant them both. We talked about the risk there and ultimately I said to her, "If you were me, what would you do?" She said, I would implant both. Ultimately we were pregnant with just 1 child and I have no doubt it all worked out because of Abby's clinical expertise, her determination to assist us and her genuine love for helping women become moms.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Methodist for Women. (Assigned nurse: Monica)
Outside of Abby, my two favorite clinical staff members were Jean Parette and Monica (not sure of last name). They were both highly knowledge and clear communicators but also lovely people to be around.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
This clinic is VERY busy because they have an incredible reputation. In Omaha, it's known that this clinic has a high success rate for yielding pregnancy. Given this, it can seem a little hectic at times, however; once you find the right doctor, that feeling goes away. You no longer feel like a "number" but a woman with a great chance of realizing her dream - becoming a mom.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women.
I can't remember the specific price tag but I would estimate we spent around $10,000 for our IVF procedure which was well worth it. We now get to spend every day with our son!
Describe Abigail Delaney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
As I mentioned previously, we ended up only have 2 healthy embryos and because one seemed to appear to be much more viable than the other, we implanted both. My husband and I were aware this could have resulted in twins but we were also happy and hopeful about that option too.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Methodist for Women.
When I started at this clinic, under a different doctor's care, I didn't feel like the processes and procedures were clearly explained at every step of the way. However, admittedly, I also didn't exactly know which questions to ask early on. It's a lot to take in so I found it hard to be a strong advocate for myself initially.
